  1. Didn’t work for me!
    Apparently not for android newbies (if anyone).

    None of the files in the instructions were explicitly in the file download. Apparently you can just open the .tar.md5 file that you download in step 1 for steps 6, 7 and 8 (Odin must know how to extract the needed files itself).
    There is no CSS in the Odin app as indicated in step 8. I presume it should have been CSC as Odin has a button labeled that way.
    I eventually figured out how to extract files from the .md5 file using 7-zip. Even after that I didn’t see most of the files referred to in steps 6-8.

    The show-stopper for me was step 9. It calls for selecting the file with a .pit extension. When you select the PIT button, the Odin app only allows you to select files with a .pit or .xml extension of which neither is available (even when extracted from the .md5 file). Since you can’t open a file in this case there is nothing you can do and no file opened for Odin to extract from (assuming it could).

    One other difference for me. Instructions for entering the download mode were also not compatible with my T-Mobile Samsung S2. For my phone you enter the download mode by 1) starting with phone powered off, 2) pressing and holding both volume up and volume down buttons and then pressing the power button. Keep both of the volume buttons pressed until you get the download message. Then press the volume up button to continue.

    Fortunately I did not brick my phone but I was very concerned. However, in the end I was not able to update my phone using these instructions.
